Gemstone Lore: Ametrine

According to Wikipedia: "Ametrine, also known as trystine or by its trade name as bolivianite, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. Almost all commercially available ametrine is mined in Bolivia, although there are deposits being exploited in Brazil and India."

Ametrine is said to help soothe fear, anxiety, trauma and depression, and enhance ones insight and clarity.
